    Where to fish next in Alaska?

    Captain Billy, How far do you have to run to find large (58" or greater) halibut? What are the average Lingcod sizes?

    2 parter: do you feel safe in Mexico and where/when would you fish….

    Cedros and Puerto Vallarta. May others I am sure but those are two places I fished that I would bring my family. PV for extended vacation too.

    Talica 50 vs Avet EX 50 3 speed for cow BFT

    Looked at Avet and Shimano. Penn VISX 20 fit me better and got a good deal from Squidco with fathers day gift certificate from my sons.

    Alaska guides

    Six trips to Elfin Cove Resort. Always an excellent trip. Icy Bay Lodge is really good for big lingcod and halibut but remote.

    Cedros In Early November

    Anyone have experience fishing Cedros in early November? Looks like three lodges have many openings. Too late in the year?

    Advice on travel rods?

    Black Hole has nice two piece that I have caught YFT and halibut on. 5’2” when attached. Great on a 4pax. Phenix Redeye worked well for me on rockfish and I plan to test on Calico bass soon.

    Slow pitch jigging fishing line recommendation

    I have used Diawa J Braid, 8X multicolor and Nomad Panderra. Also Momoi multicolor but I cannot find it anymore. All worked well.

    Komodo 500?

    Any rumor of a Komodo 500series reel coming out? Sounds like Diawa is testing a prototype and Shimano has had theirs for a number of years. Really like my 471 and would like a larger version.

    Okuma PCH 701XH works well too. I have both and really like them both. Use the 801 as my lite...

    Okuma PCH 701XH works well too. I have both and really like them both. Use the 801 as my lite jig stick on 4pax too.

    Check out Black Hole. Many videos on the Icy Bay, AK posts. I like their Cape Cod Special SPJ rod best and own a couple. Used the Charter Special which is lower cost and landed 140# halibut and many big lingcod.
